Makes other boards seem just pathetic.
- Pro-Tip construction reduces swing weight to make spins easier
- Twin flex helps you ride switch without a worry
- Channel binding connection works with EST and 3D bindings
- Medium stiffness lets you hit anything from a terrain park to a powder shot
- Slimrail sidewall construction cuts grams even further
- Directional shape for improved all-mountain performance

can you have a burton board with k2 bindings...
can you have a burton board with k2 bindings and k2 boots
If K2 makes a two hole disk pattern then yes. As far as I know they do not have a two hole disk. You need to have a two hole disk pattern to run a EST binding in order to ride this amazing board. It is worth it to get the bindings and the board.
The Wise One...
You know what? It IS pretty stupid to buy a board that sells for over $700. That's why I'm buying this board off of EBAY for $650! Ya gotta look around, don't just take the first thing you see... Cause at the end of the day, I have more money in my pocket than you, and that takes panties off quicker than anything.. Kids, don't buy boards at retail, and wait til the end of the season for the best deals...
People hate on Burton and think the company is all about the bottom line. I have been boarding since I owned a Burton Elite 150. Look it up. Punk a$$ kids who think its cool to hate know nothing about Jake Burton or what he's about. The method is a great board. Personally, I like the vapor, but its a great board. If you have the money, blast it. It will go wherever you what fast. Yeah, there are cheaper boards for the guys who don't have a life off the hill and have to settle, but no need to hate on that either. I run the A Frame (Arbor) in the powder and the Vapor everywhere else. Jake Burton made the sport what it is and, coming from someone who remembers being banned from ski areas cuz I had a board, he's not the guy to hate.
if i normally ride a 153 board, would I...
if i normally ride a 153 board, would I be able to ride this considering it's 158, or does that 5 cm make that much of a difference?
5 or 6cm is a bigger difference than you might think. I normally ride 161/163 but this year i bought a 57 Burton x8 - it was just too small to be comfortable on. Ended up selling it after two days of riding.
Ya even a couple of cm can make a huge diffrence when i was 9 i rode this little 142 piece of crap and when i switched to 153, its was a crazy diffrence it took me a month to get used to it
i bet its a good board but after the 700...
i bet its a good board but after the 700 dollar mark boards dont get much better and y is this board so much anyway
soo i have been riding for about 2 days...
soo i have been riding for about 2 days now and im wondering if this board is good for starters i have the money and if there is anything better for starters let me know.
If you are a baller enough to afford this board!
#1) props to you... you've done well for yourself
#2) it rides similar to a Burton Custom... but with the quicker reaction time of an alumafly core. It is not ideal for beginners but if you got it, flaunt it. It does have a medium flex and a great shape to it!!! you can easily grow into after a few more weeks of riding.
p.s. Think of it as a lamborghini... they don't do so well off road. They are high performance sports cars. With that, don't ride this board on terrain that you know is rocky as a core shot is not s easy to fix.
All in all, this board is next level and will truly blow your mind!!!
I would never have bought that board as a beginner. There are WAY more appropriate boards for starters . . . the Method is geared more to freestyle-prone riders, and as a beginner, I doubt you're doing rails and gap jumps on day 2. Just remember, the most expensive board is not always the best.
I know this thread is a little old and I don't know what you ultimately decided to spend your money on, but here are a few thoughts:
As with most things, your get what you pay for. While I encourage spending money on a board I hope you are thinking in terms of set up, which you made no mention of, because there isn't a board out there that can compensate for crapy bindings and boots. Secondly, if your have to as the question, " is this board for me", the. Chances are RIGHT NOW it is not..as you are still discovering how you want to ride..for now invest in something a little more forgiving.. At least until you a proficient enough rider..Not only will our ass, but your base and topsheet will thank u for it later.. Alas this comes from someone whose first board was a Ride Concept UL, a higher end board. I love my board, but ended up buying another board that was better suited fr buttering and playing around in the park.
What a ride!
I mean really, at $1,499.95 I shouldn't even have to show up to ride this board. Amen!
This board will not give you inches below the belt.
Buying this board tells everyone one thing "You cannot shred" Its alright though, just as some people kill it some people gotta suck and rely on their gear to prove something and hey as long as you're walking around the village with this in your hand it may be dropping panties but it will get you no respect. Once on the hill the men get separated from the boys and this board is not going to make you tight. Here's what will:quit your day job and shred 100+ days a year. It's that simple, no board in the world will make you a sick rider only actual riding. Anyone who shreds knows Burton is not the answer. It's a money hungry corp that comes up with crap that real riders would never use cuz they know they can get better gear for half the price. But hey if you own this board you are prob crawling into your Range Rover after a day at Aspen at $100 a day so enjoy that 1 week you shred cuz the core riders will have the whole season to clown you on the lift. Want a real snowboard company? Look for the small ones sponsoring kids that don't win half pipe comps, they are building boards that rip and truly care about your business.
All Mountain Excalibur!!!!!!!
I had the chance to ride the Method last January at the Snow Basin MSI Demo and it's INSANE!!!!! I got it first thing in the morning and decided to pair it with the Burton C02 ICS Bindings in medium. It had been warm the day before and I wanted to see how this ultralight construction would hold up at full speed on wide open semi frozen groomers. The Method blew me away. Never hesitated when pushed full throttle and the board was so light and active that I had no trouble popping full speed 180's into locked turns. I like Twin flex for it's predictability and the Method never dissapointed. Tail butter presses to light-speed groomer runs, the METHOD RULES. If you have the means, try or buy this board!!!!!!
I personally own this board please disregard the comment this anus left.... The board is awesome he's just hating.....Super lite, great flex, great pop, top sheet is basically scratch resistant....... Rides like his last girl after I was done with her fast and hard
sucks for the money
board is not all its cracked up to be. The board rides like the last gf i had, slow and bad response time. i dumped her ass just like i did this board. dont buy this board. dont buy burton.
Is this board likely to bend if you ride...
Is this board likely to bend if you ride it in the park too much? relative to a wood cored board?
if you have enough money to buy this board, why dont you just buy a park board? Just a suggestion. Maybe buy a park board for 500 and an other board for 1000. Just my 2 cents.
I don't know why they gave you 'thumbs down', Lukas. You are making total sense.
Ha, two thumbs downs for what? it wasn't me who gave you the thumbs down Lukas, i appreciated the help, but now to prove the laws of tit for tat, you can add another thumbs down to your tally bruhh. enjoy
will you be getting the 162cm? will this...
will you be getting the 162cm? will this be available in wide?
I dont think they make a wide version of this board. The burton site doesnt have a wide board version of the method.
